Absences from School

Absence Due to Illness

If your child is ill and unable to attend school you must telephone the school office on 020 8688 4268 on every day of their absence with full details of the absence (Unwell or sick) is not a sufficient explanation.


Application for Absence for Exceptional Circumstances

In line with the Government's September 2014 amendments to the 2006 regulations any leave of absence during term time will NOT be authorised. The Headteacher, on behalf of the Governing Board, will only authorise leave in exceptional circumstances. Each request will be assessed on an individual basis and documentary evidence may be requested.

If leave is taken without authorisation then the Local Authority may issue a Fixed Penalty notice of £60 to each parent for each child.
